We had dinner here after we went to the Zoo and were very impressed. It was delicious and extremely reasonable. The staff were super nice. It had a good atmosphere, and is generally a nice pub. We stayed and had a couple of drinks afterwards, so we could people watch. A nice spot very close to the train station.

Located close to where was stayed, this was a very nice little place. We ate our last dinner in Dublin here and it was worth it! Very quiet "hometowny" feel to it. Very friendly staff and the food was great as well!
